Butterscotch Haystacks – 2 WW Points Plus

I was very surprised to find that these little bites of cookies were only 2 Weight Watcher points each.  Not bad really!  This is a cool little no-bake cookie to include on your cookie tray this year!

All you need to do is melt the Nestle Butterscotch Morsels in your microwave (or double boiler) and stir in your peanut butter, chow mein noodles, and marshmallows.  I’ve seen others in the Allrecipes AllStar Program decorate them with colorful candies – makes them so much prettier.  I had to really doctor up the photo to make it not look so ugly for me.  However, looks can be so deceiving and these really are a yummy little bite.  They are by far not my favorite cookie ever, but they are a definite sweet easy treat to share!  My favorite cookie I have made to this season to date for the Allstar program has been the White Chip Orange Cookies.

If you are looking for something you can enjoy and if your on the Weight Watcher’s program and want to count your points, here you go! :)
